Daily Note

Late Lab Tuesday had me leaving solo from Porter at 4:45pm when the weather was 66 degrees, 6 mph winds, and mostly sunny. A truly gorgeous day outside helped turn what could've been a pretty boring and 'get it done' run into a relatively good one. Just made up a little something as I went along and in the end, had a lot of similarities to one of my favorite routes, Maple House. Deviations were additional Carleton suburbs, Canada Rd. oab, and a different way back through the Arb since I wanted to avoid what was probably a very wet Iron Bridge. My legs and cardio never felt great on this. Cardio was strained/restricted and legs never got into a good rhythm. Probably due to higher mileage recently and poor sleep the last two nights. The tibial tendon was super dooper tight the first mile or two but got loosened up and I hardly noticed it for the remainder of things, though I felt some twinges during the later miles. No pain on the top of the left foot today was encouraging. Afterwards, did calf raises, toe tappers, rolling (really honed in on left hip flexor...ouch!), the Elliot Core Routine, and standing stretches out on the turf. Nice to get back out there. Core routine was a little subpar today. I haven't been as consistent with this recently, so gotta make sure I sack up and get it done three times a week. PF7s @ 311.2 miles.
